  1. Have you tried running your engine hotter? Maybe it kicks in at 115 or something.
  2. My side flap was bad, the plastic "nut" that sits on the threaded rod was bad. This causes spurious "exceeded timeout". New mechanism is $89 on ebay. Top works as a champ now!
  3. Almost 100k miles. 99 cab. I do see some plastic debris in the oil filter, think it's the cam chain guides. Seems like a PITA to replace.
  4. Somehow it worked now. I did put a lot of loctite on it, maybe that was it. Next problem is the side flap. The plastic piece that sits on the threaded rod is broken. Found a new assemble for $89, will see what happens after that thanks!
  5. Hi, I used the emergency operation to close the top. I am trying to open the roof but the clamshell will not open. The motor turns but the clamshell doesn't move. I tried removing the "override" screw and thread it in again but nothing happens. Is there any tricks? I have Durametric (The whole emergency process was unnecessary, it started raining so I freaked out. Turns out the hood wasn't closed properly.....) Thanks
